The average attendance record for a season is 7,700 set in 1996 and nearly broken in 2010-11. Indications are clear that a new record will soon be made with crowds of over 20,000 recently storming the gates of venues for big games. Last season opened with an audience of 20,298 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum and ended with 23,234 witnessing Game 5 of the Governors Cup Finals between San Mig Coffee and Rain Or Shine. During the season, the PBA recorded an all-time, single-game attendance mark of 24,883 in Game 7 of the Philippine Cup semifinals between San Mig Coffee and Barangay Ginebra San Miguel to eclipse the previous high of 23,436 in Game 3 of the 2012-13 Commissioner’s Cup Finals between Alaska and Ginebra.
